We recognise the pressures of studying and working at the same time. Short courses offer a flexible and alternative approach that can be completed to suit your work schedule. We offer variety in our portfolio of learning that will help you develop new analytical skills, in-depth disciplinary knowledge and the capacity to deploy critical thinking, all of which are essential to work effectively in health related organisations in a globalised world.
